Curran Porto, Trusts Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Dale for over 20 years, and find him to be the expert in Elder Law, VA benefits and Estate Planning. I also practice in these areas, but often rely upon Dale for guidance in complex long-term care matters. I highly recommend him.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Dale’s comment: “The reprimand was not related to a client - my attorney actually asked the Bar for an opinion under the self reporting requirements and they issued a reprimand to for both of us for filing a case in the wrong venue, not dishonesty. It was not about a client, fees, or a grievance. The opinion states that I did not mislead anyone, just that it “lacks candor” to the Court since there are specific rules on venue.”
